The Mooresville Police Department responded to a report of a shooting on Fieldstone Road early Thursday evening. As of Friday afternoon, a suspect was still being sought.
Officers were in the area seeking a masked suspect shortly after 7 p.m., scanner reports at the time indicated.
The Mooresville Graded School District issued a statement on its Facebook page shortly before 10 p.m. Thursday stating that it was aware of the shooting and that “the shooter as of the time of this message has not been captured.”
The statement says the victim was taken to CMC with a serious gunshot wound in the abdomen. The note states the school system is working closely with MPD “to be sure there is no threat to our schools in the vicinity.”
“I know there is much concern over the reported shooting last night on Fieldstone. Due to the sensitive nature of this matter and the ongoing investigation, there is very little we can say at this time,” Mooresville Police Chief Ron Campurciani said. “Many fears have been stirred because of false information and speculation circulated on social media sites. I know my inability to address any details may not calm the fears of some, but based on the investigation so far, the public is not in any danger.”
